Whether completing personal tasks or overseeing projects at work, Busybot is there to organize your tasks and teams. Send Busybot a direct message and your friendly robot will turn the message into a task. You can assign that task to a team member (or multiple team members!), set a due date and time, send a reminder, get a morning report, subscribe to tasks (so you’re notified when someone completes a task you’ve assigned to them) and much more.
Busybot also makes your Slack channels more organized and work-focused. Pin tasks to a channel, invite @busybot into channels (private and public) to create tasks there, organize your tasks with color-labels, attach files to tasks and add extra detail with descriptions, comments, checklists and subtasks.
Busybot is full of features useful to team members and essential to managers, including the Team Calendar (track the progress of all tasks across the team) and the audit trails (keep a record of all tasks completed)
Here at the basics:
Busybot is free to use for teams of all sizes, for as long as you like. Upgraded features start from $1.67/user/month for a team of 5.
